DATE: 7-week series begins September 29
TIME: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Pacific Time / 1:00 - 2:00 PM Eastern Time
The diverse mythology of Chiron is much more than “wounded healer.” Chiron shows us openings. Not just open wounds, but open doors, windows of opportunity, shamanic portals to dimensions above and below. A person’s consciousness is the key to being with, getting into, or getting out of “the hole” and experiencing “holistically” “the whole.” If one is lacking Chiron’s wisdom, Chiron’s astrological placement seems simply hopelessly problematic. For instance, Chiron in Aries (now) is a time of issues involving bullies and the bullied, “wounded” perpetrators of violence and victims of violence, “Chicken hawk” war hawks and peaceful warriors “doves.”
Mythological Chiron, ever the Outsider, lived and lives in Nature, not so much indoors. Decades ago on Sunday mornings, Catholic Mass was televised in black and white as “Mass for Shut-ins” to solitary sufferers unable to attend church “in the flesh.” In analogous spirit, this seven-week Sunday morning (PDT/PST) course offers Chironic perspectives and full spectrum practical applicable astrological analysis of astrological Chiron via an Internet cyberspace meeting room. “There ain’t nothin’ like the real thing, Baby”, yet we can do the best that we can positively repurpose for a couple of hours out of a week to use the very Promethean/Uranian technology that could try to steal our souls and trash Gaia.
Decades ago, your presenter, Dale O’Brien, 68, was one of the initial explorers of astrological Chiron. His applied mythology approach to astrology is grounded in years of research as well as validation from colleagues, clients, students and friends. He has revived and enhanced his seven-week in person Chiron classes from the mid-90s for this series of workshops. Presentations are 90 minute each, with 30 minutes for questions comments and Chironic conversations.
This online series covers:
Week 1: Chiron, Myth of Our Times (Sept 29)
This presentation features a slide show presentation on the diversity of the Chiron myth and how it fits perfectly Joesph Campbell's expectations of "the new myth." Chironically, the "new myth" is actually much older than the Greco-Roman myths of astrology's mythological namesakes for our planets and major asteroids. The time context of, and astronomical location of, the "discovery" of Chiron will be included.
Week 2: Chiron Soul Journey Truth (Oct 6)
This presentation will blend instructive stories of the Chironic process in stories of legendary mentors, lesser-known Jim Henson's "The Dark Crystal", Sojourner Truth's story, as well as how to discover your own unique Chiron story and Soul purpose. The later involves understanding transiting Chiron's most important aspects to your own natal Chiron, including your Chiron return.
Week 3: Chiron in Time and Space (Oct 13)
We will explore the power of now, the serenity prayer, portals and synchronicities.
Week 4: Chiron by Sign (Oct 20)
Discover the unique Shaman outsiders for each tribe of the zodiac!
Week 5: Chiron by House (Oct 27)
Examine the natives and visitors as you learn to interpret natal Chiron by house and Chiron transits by house.
Week 6: Chiron and the Gods and Goddesses (Nov 3)
This week delves into the meaning of Chiron in aspect to each planet and to the four major asteroids.
Week 7: Chiron Crystal-clear: Multi-faceted Perspectives (Nov 10)
The final week covers a range of topics:
- Chiron direct or retrograde;
- Chiron closer to Saturn versus Chiron closer to Uranus;
- Chiron in "the bigger picture";
- Chiron and one's consciousness;
- A centaur's perspective;
This week is also your opportunity to share any last questions or comments regarding Chiron.
To focus solely on the wound removes our attention from the more important healing aspect. Chiron expert Dale O’Brien considers Chiron a shaman, and nothing less. The wounding is simply part of the process, not the focus of it. - Kelli Fox (https://new.theastrologer.com/introduction-to-asteroids/chiron/)
